Examinations / Assessments
Assessment is by a mix of essays, research projects and end-of-term exams.
Students who successfully complete the LL.B. can progress onto the Masters in Criminology, the Masters in Child, Family & Community studies, or pursue an MPhil in Law.
Students will gain the ability to recognise and apply legal principles in a variety of factual contexts.
The LL.B. includes the topics required to sit the entrance exam to the BL degree at the Honorable Society of King’s Inns, which can lead to a career at the bar as a barrister. However, many students use the LL.B. to advance or begin a career in business, government employment of a non-governmental organisation.
